Default Re: Do I need a CPU cooler?

I think his best bet is to go with the Xigmatek, just like I went with the RCX-Z5. If I knew I'd like OC'ing as much as I do, I'd have gotten the TRU120.

valid for sure but as above I didn't want to go this route as the OP doesn't appear to be a die-hard ocer
No offense taken, I'm still learning how to do most stuff so I'm not gonna OC as soon as I get this computer; maybe in a month or so but even then I'm not gonna try to over-do it.

The Xigmatek looks like it would work fine for what I want.

Edit: As for the lapping, I really don't want to do that, I was reading someone elses post about it before and it wasn't all that appealing lol.

Edit2: I was reading some more reviews and other people said that i should get a retention bracket: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...tion%20Bracket
Any thoughts? I know the price isn't all that appealing but if it works, I don't mind.
